Attorneys David Daggett and Griff Shuler of Daggett Shuler Law recently visited Triad Today to discuss efforts made to combat child obesity with host Jim Longworth. Their special guest was Erin Craver, Executive Director of the YMCA of Kernersville and Race Director for the YMCA Mistletoe 5K. Watch the clip:

The Growing Epidemic of Childhood Obesity

Over the last 30 years, childhood obesity has quadrupled. Some 20% of American children are considered obese, and approximately one-third qualify as overweight. The likelihood that overweight or obese children will carry excess weight into adulthood increases their risk for serious physical and emotional complications later in life—including diabetes, heart disease, and depression.

About Mistletoe 5K

The 35th Annual YMCA Mistletoe 5K to Stop Childhood Obesity benefits the YMCA’s efforts to fight childhood obesity. This year, nearly 3000 runners representing more than 24 states are expected to participate. Details on the race—which David Daggett is scheduled to announce—are available here.

The Mistletoe 5K is one of the oldest and largest races in Winston-Salem, attracting hundreds of runners. The December 1st race includes a fun run, half marathon, and 5K. The event focuses on the YMCA’s efforts to promote active play and learning—including swimming and other physical activities—as they teach children to live healthy lifestyles.

Participants can pre-register here. Race-day registration starts at 6:00am and ends promptly at 7:00am. The fun run starts at 7:30am. The half marathon and 5K events start at 8:00am and 8:15am, respectively. Anyone with questions can e-mail mistletoe@ymcanwnc.org for information.

Daggett Shuler Law – You Can Depend on Us

I was seriously injured at work in June of 2016, requiring surgery and hardware to repair the damage done. My ego and ignorance of the law led me back to work after a long and painful recuperating span. After struggling to come to terms with the fact that I was not physically able to do the things I once could, circumstances and my son Tim led me to Daggett Shuler. They were very attentive as I explained my situation and very thorough in explaining my options and what I might expect in pursuing them. I was assigned to Chris Wilkie as my attorney and would be in contact with John Dillard throughout the process. Both gentlemen were complete professionals from start to finish and I would like to express my gratitude to them both and to the whole law firm. Their kindness and knowledgeable guidance now allows me to pursue the next chapter in my life with financial stability no longer an issue. I would recommend Daggett Shuler to anyone in need of legal services. I would also recommend that you do not wait like I did but contact them immediately because the sooner you speak with them, the sooner you will be at ease knowing what to expect and that you have a great team on your side. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!!!
